1/28/09 I haven't practiced piano since before Christmas...time to get back to the grind. This Beethoven sonata was not a good warmup for the fingers. It's too @#$$% hard! [piano lamp lighting only]

    Love this one in particular! Did you use a timer? I haven't had much luck with getting myself back in the shot before the blinkin' thing goes off! :-)

    That does it....sounds like you need to put on a concert! Let us know the place and time. I love the warmth exuded in this shot; the accompaniment of the music would complete the feeling.

    I didn't read your description and was trying to figure out who the composer was. I saw the opening motive and then confirmed on the second page. Beethoven! I love that piece.

    Lovely picture!
